Lip products I'm loving


When it comes to make up, lipsticks and glosses are one of my favourite items- there's such a exciting colour selection and it's such an easy way to brighten up your face.

L-R: MAC sweetie, MAXfactor sweet red and Benefit life on the A list

For years I only used to wear lipgloss because I found lipsticks drying but MAC sweetie lipstick gives a sheer wash of glossy colour without being too drying on my lips.

It's a gorgeous pinky plum colour that's natural enough for everyday wear but can also be layered for a more intense night-time look.

I was sent this MAXfactor lipgloss in sweet red, which quickly made it onto my favourites list.

It gives a sheer pinky red glossy colour which looks lovely on its own or layered over a lipstick. It feels quite moisturising and isn't too sticky either.

For fuss free everyday lip I've been reaching for my Benefit life on the A list lipgloss.

It's a gorgeous pinky nude that gives a hint of colour for a 'my lips but better' look with a nice glossy finish. I don't think it's worth paying full price for but I would definitely recommend if you win the Flake Benefit promotion.

What would be your favourite make up item? Which lip products have you been loving recently?
